Stunning Southern Gulf Islands views from this architectural masterpiece.
Expansive central great room framed in glass ensures maximum enjoyment of the spectacular surroundings. Evening patio dining with awesome sunsets. All modern comforts.

The space

The owners, together with their talented architects, have gone to great lengths to create a truly magnificent contemporary residence in a superb location. Published three times in architectural magazines and prominently featured in the Wood Calendar [published in Japan] rarely does a property of this caliber enter the vacation rental market. Perched on a rocky ridge above Poets Cove Resort & Spa the residence is designed to maximize enjoyment of the expansive views over the Gulf Islands. We offer our home as a vacation rental to discerning guests who can appreciate its unique qualities.
The WiFi allows guest to stay 'in touch' and the den offers a great location for reading, light work or study at the floating desk. At night the den converts into a theatre with a projection TV and drop down screen for TV and movie watching [Apple TV and Netflix available]. Premium audio equipment, surround sound, and great acoustics support a great audio experience in the den/theatre, Great Room and master bedroom. The Grand Piano sparkles in this beautiful acoustic setting and is available for playing, but is asked to be treated with respect.

Guest access

The entire house is available. Both the master bedroom/ensuite and guest bedroom feature a queen sized bed. The third bedroom features two bunk beds. In a pinch another two sleeping locations are available.
The south terrace with its gas BBQ is a prime location for evening dining and entertaining, enjoying magnificent views and sunsets.

Interaction with guests

Guests can interact with property managers located on Pender Island if problems arise.

Other things to note

The property is located very close to Poets Cove Resort & Spa [(URL HIDDEN) which in addition to a marina offers two swimming pools, a pub restaurant with patio for dining and entertaining, a luxurious spa with open air hot tub and eucalyptus steam grotto, as well as tennis courts and an exercise room - all available to non hotel guests for a small fee. Fine dining is offered in the Aurora Dining Room during summer months.
Our guests will find many walking trails and small parks on Pender Island and can enjoy fresh water swimming in Magic Lake. Kayaks can be rented from Pender Island Kayak Adventures (URL HIDDEN)
The island has a mid sized shopping centre serving a population of approximately 2200 residents which in summer time swells to double that amount. The shopping centre includes a well equipped grocery store, liquor store, bookstore, restaurant and bakery/coffee shop. Many artists have taken residency on Pender Island and have opened their studios to visitors.

If you want real break, a place to recharge your batterys and to remind yourself what it is to have time and space to relax Eric's house is what you are looking for. Pender island is step back into a time where life moved at a slower pace and we had time for each other. The house itself is as beautiful as the pictures and wonderful to stay in. The view (as has been mentioned in previous reviews) is impossible to describe, we have stayed in many beautiful places in our travels but never ever have we seen anything like this view, it was impossible to get bored of it the constantly changing light, the birds, the tankers and ferrys in the distance.. truely extraordinary. The furnishings are gorgeous but there are slate stairs and a rock slope out the front so it wouldn't be ideal for toddlers or really small children but our 9/11/13 year olds loved the house, the cool bunk bed (with a ready made ideal den space underneath) and it's awesome music and tv (sorry cinema!) system.. We loved our stay and would highly highly recommend the house in every way. Eric has been charming and brilliantly responsive - round 5 star...

Wow! Eric's home is amazing! The photos don't do it justice this home is truly one of a kind. The home was very clean for us and we had all the right amenities we needed. We loved sitting on the patio and soaking up the sun. Can't wait to visit again.

Wonderful 3 day stay in Eric's Ridge House, an architectural masterpiece, with incredible views. Pender Island is great, with a lot of nice trails to explore and many water access points.

Had the opportunity to stay in this house for the weekend with a few friends, and it was everything I hoped for and more. Any fan of architecture or good design in general would love staying in this house. The views of the ocean from the top of the ridge were incredible, and the serene location was a nice getaway from the busy city.

Magnificent place and location. As we are planning to come again and don't want it to be overbooked, it is probably good idea to wrap up review :)

A magnificent home with breathtaking views from every room! The pictures do not do this home justice. Be sure to explore the area, including the Enchanted Forest Park, Poet's Cove and the many trails and beaches past Poet's Cove. We hope to return in 2018!
